Tumblr Time

September 10, 2012

Hello, all!

The time has come to bid goodbye to AEAE, WordPress edition. I swear I am not trying to purposely move and make you all follow me around every three years, but I’ve had it with WordPress.

I have moved over every post (well, that I intend to move). I am looking into a way to move comments as well, there are so many I would hate to lose.

Speaking of comments, Tumblr doesn’t have any way to let people comment on a post without reblogging it or replying directly from your own dashboard (meaning either way, you have to have your own Tumblr account/blog.) I added Disqus to AEAE Tumblr, to facilitate comments from folks who don’t want to sign up with Tumblr. Basically, you create an account, log in and leave your comment, no signing-up-for-a-Tumblr-blog necessary.

To sign up for Disqus, click here.

From now on, all AEAE posts will happen at the new address, which is

Thanks for everything, and I hope to see you there!

(And yes – the Halloween Countdown is a go!)

Tea Party

August 26, 2012

No, not the political kind. My bestie and I threw ourselves a tea party today. She made a ton of lovely little tea sandwiches with arugula and cucumber (they were completely eaten up) and I made a pound cake and a lavender cake using the lavender in my garden. We put on a pot of blueberry tea and had a great time.

I’ve included several pictures of the spread below.

About This Blog

August 19, 2012

After all the work I went through back in 2009 to ‘port all my posts over from Blogger to WordPress, I swore I’d never do that again.

Unfortunately, behind the scenes changes to how the site works have become an endless pain in the ass for me.
I am strongly considering packing up and moving this blog over to Tumblr. I hate dealing with the changes here at WordPress, Tumblr is a very, very easy blogging format, I anticipate the move being more time-consuming than hard, few people leave comments here anyway and for those who want to, I could always go with Disqus, and the biggie? No more paying for all the extra space here every year. Also, upside: music posts would resume.

I hadn’t anticipated leaving this blog go again, but it’s been a summer of few pictures. I’ve had personal stress and heartache all over the place, involving losing my father and a car i could barely drive safely or afford to fix keeping me under effective house arrest, so … haven’t picked up the camera as much as I’d intended.

I am also on the fence about Halloween … do I do the Countdown or not? Aforementioned issues have got me far behind on pictures or¬†anything¬†else for October, and starting in August, well, you’re definitely behind.

Just thinking out loud about the future.
